Fabled is an independent bookshop in the heart of downtown Waco. Step through the door and say hello to Aesop, a five-foot-tall wooden owl, and peruse the rows of books, gifts and toys. If you’re a fan of C.S. Lewis (or simply a fan of childlike wonder), keep your eyes peeled for a Narnia-esque lamppost and an inconspicuous wardrobe door that may or may not lead you to the children’s section of the store. This is a popular study spot for Baylor students; the quiet atmosphere makes it easy to settle in and hit the books (figuratively, of course).
Ramble & Company, a women-owned and operated business, seeks to create space for confidence and growth. They offer a wonderful array of gifts, jewelry and décor for both home and office. Small-batch, hand-printed t-shirts are a unique (and soft!) souvenir to take home and share with those who couldn’t join you on your trip.
The shops and boutiques along Austin Avenue in Downtown Waco offer special and unique goods for their customers. Go on a treasure hunt for antiques and home goods. If you’re in the market for the perfect outfit (or two, or three), there’s no shortage of places to peruse.
